Check-out Station: Symphogear G ep13 (nothing is impossible for someone who wears their underwear on the outside)

That is that! It is done! And this time I can actually muster up some words for the conclusion of this season, unlike for the original. I’m glad I watched this series, completed it and got to enjoy it for all its great and flawed and ridiculous parts! Read more…

Symphogear G ep12: you can’t fly with just one wing

First of all, the Moon is a device to keep people from communicating with each other?  What?!  How deep is your bag ridiculousness Symphogear G? Also, when did this show turn into just a series of misunderstandings? This is almost like a bunch of Gundam fights, where people are lamenting humanity’s inability to communicate with each other.  Oh man!  What utter nonsense!  That said, let’s get down to the important business of watching little girls try to kill each other while singing and wearing (or not wearing) the most ridiculous clothing.   Read more…

Symphogear G ep9: the royal rumble of magical girl shows

September 4, 2013 1 comment

I don’t think this show knows how to take it down a notch! Even though it has a small cast and draws from only a few resources, it keeps mixing the pot so that each show refuses to be formulaic. Though I will say the constant seems to be that show desperately wants to keep you excited and wanting its next installment.

We’re lead to be believe that Miku was blown to moe chunks at the end of the previous episode. But Read more…

Symphogear G ep7 & 8: Trouble’s her middle name!

Episode 7

This episode came to a hell of a conclusion, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves as this was a very Dragonball-Z type of episode.

What we get in the beginning is one hell of a confrontation, though I wouldn’t necessarily call it a fight. Hibiki’s rampage from the last episode has put her on the brink of defeating the Noise-spamming sociopath, Dr. Ver. It’s just too bad that near victory is just the start of a series of convenient coincidences, as the expressionless Shirabe and the genki Kirikia show up to stop her with their Gears. Their stand off leads to Read more…

Symphogear G ep6: magical girls don’t retire, they explode like a thousand suns!

In the span of one episode, the tables are turned, the hourglass is reset and once again Hibiki is the most fearsome creature on the planet!

Last episode’s cliffhanger is quickly resolved when we’re reminded that Symphogear didn’t study at the school of pretty prissy mahou shoujo like all the other good little magical girl shows. Mahou shoujo got its degree at the school of shounen battle manga, where lost limbs and death are only excuses to get stronger and kick more ass. The loss of Hibiki’s arm and the ensuing panic causes Hibiki to go berserk at the same time the Nephilim digests her arm and transforms into a larger evolved form. Amazingly, berserker Hibiki is able to regenerate her arm, much to everyone’s amazement. This leads to a ridiculous and brutal fight between the two literal monsters. A fight that the Nephilim is clearly losing. Read more…
